Firefox keeps freeing/hanging. First you will see the errors that pop up for me. Then the troubleshooting I have done to solve this problem.

Script Error: Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/imageBlock/imageBlock-3190704718._V1_.js:773

Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/digital/sitb/reader/v4/201411111537/en_US/sitb-library-js._V319867744_.js:34


Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/site-wide-js-1.2.6-beacon/site-wide-5809221203._V1_.js:184


For troubleshooting I have tried the following: disable addon's and restart in safe mode (did not help) disable theme and restart in safe mode (did not help) reset firefox (did not help) uninstalled Firefox & removed all traces of browser from my computer (yes even the registry was removed)


after doing the above I still had all my previous settings. I used IE to download a fresh copy and tired again. Still have all my settings, plugin's, tabs, and unremoved cookies and a little history

I am not tech savvy but the script errors made me think of Javascript. I went to about:config and searched for Java when javascript.enabled showed up I disabled and the problem has disappeared.

I know I need this javascript enabled. I cannot do much of anything at my site with is disabled.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this script hanging problem.

Thanks for any help.

Sync fails sync Bookmarks on one PC only.

I've recently noticed lots of error-sync logs in the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<My Profile>\weave\logs folder. My sync is set up to handle Bookmarks and History only.

I have 4 devices, 2 PCs - both Firefox 56.0.2 32-bit and 2 Android devices (latest Firefox, not sure of version). All 4 were previously set to sync together, Bookmarks/History.

One of the PCs (Windows 7 x64) - has the logs, but I've read numerous articles online on how to fix Sync myself or correct a corrupted places.sqlite database as that's what the error log seems to be suggesting is wrong.

Running check integrity against places.sqlite gives me this:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check database integrity > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I have tried to repeat the process in safe mode and with a clear (new) profile - the issue persists. I have deleted places.sqlite (after making a backup) to see if sync suddenly starts working - but the bookmark related issue simply returns.

I have signed out on all devices, changed my sync password and logged in on just the PCs (for now until the problem is resolved). I have deleted all bookmarks on the 'problem' PC, then re-imported them from Internet Explorer on the other PC, then reactivated sync - this seems to initially work but once the 'problem' PC has the bookmarks, it tries to sync them and the errors return.

The error in question appears to be this:

1527797240532 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks WARN Error while backing up bookmarks, but continuing with sync: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed (resource://gre/modules/Sqlite.jsm:823:25) JS Stack trace: handleCompletion@Sqlite.jsm:823:25 1527797240534 Sync.BrowserIDManager DEBUG _ensureValidToken already has one 1527797240543 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks DEBUG Successfully wrote previousFailed.

I can supply the entire file if required or put it on pastebin.

The only real issue I'm having is that I simply want my history/bookmarks (but nothing else) shared between all my devices that use Firefox, be it quantum or 56.0.2.

I have not tried Firefox Quantum (as numerous add-ons I use are unsupported and I didn't want to simply switch without a road back). I did try Firefox 52.0.8 ESR but the first thing it did was delete my places.sqlite so I wasn't able to reproduce the problem I'm having as I don't want to lose my history data (bookmarks are stored primarily in IE for convenience and simply imported when I need them as I use 'PlainOldFavorites' extension).

This looks like a bug with firefox sync or a corrupt file, but since I've cleared places.sqlite and let FF recreate it, I'm at a loss. If you need any further information to help solve this, I'm happy to provide as much as possible.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer :)

I have been getting the following error message on various websites, including Google, Deviantart and others:

Network Protocol Error

Firefox has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the network protocol was detected.

   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

Refreshing the page makes the page load properly, but the error keeps occuring.

I'm using Firefox version 65.0, which seems to be up to date. I have tried reinstalling Firefox and creating a new profile, but the problem persists. My Windows version is 8.1. I am currently using the following add-ons: McAfee WebAdvisor version 7.0.0.17912 uBlock Origin version 1.18.4

Possibly related: some sites are not displaying image thumbnails on first load, or are displaying them incorrectly; e.g., Youtube will sometimes display the thumbnails from a previous search on a new search.

Any help will be apprectiated, thanks in advance.

How to fix "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional"

On one of our machines, we get the message

> The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.

According to the user, this started after we upgraded the machine to MacOS 10.14 Mojave. We already tried to

  • restart the computer
  • start Firefox in safe mode
  • reinstall Firefox
  • move places.sqlite to have Firefox create a new one
  • create a new profile
  • refresh Firefox
  • granted Firefox full disk access under "System Preferences - Security & Privacy - Privacy"

all without success. I even tried to open places.sqlite with sqlite3, but wasn't able to find any tables, despite the file being +500kb.

The integrity verification of the places database produced the following output:

Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Could not open connection to /home/g001570/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/scuoog8q.default-1541591890759/places.sqlite: 2153971714

> Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

> Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

This error code (0x80630002) leads me to "NS_ERROR_STORAGE_IOERR". Is this a correct assumption?

I'm wondering whether there are ways to find the original error that caused Firefox to show this error message (like "could not open file xy"), or is there a debug log that can be used to get more information about this problem? What's also puzzling me is the fact that this error persists even with a new profile or a fresh install.

Any help or advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.

After upgrading to 33.03, I get an error message whenever I try to quit or restart saying "Cancel All Downloads? If you quit now, 72 downloads will be canceled. Are you sure you want to quit?" with buttons saying "Don't Quit" and "Cancel 72 Downloads"

I absolutely do NOT want to cancel ANY downloads, but I seem to be stuck. There is some urgency because my area in Maryland has frequent power failures, and the least short-term power fluctuation will cause my iMac to restart, causing me to lose hours of choosing and downloading graphics files. What can I do?

Since Friday 25/5/2018 Firefox Developer Toolbar (SHIFT + F2) shows me hundreds if not thousands of errors on every page I visit, but if I click on the counter it'll show the Developer Console with 0 or almost 0 errors.

Just to make an example on this page it's showing me 663 errors, but if I open the console it only shows 2(3) warnings and 1 error. On some pages after a few minutes it reached 4k+ errors.

Firefox ESR 52.8.0. Yes I tried to launch firefox in safe mode and in fact I'm using the safe mode right now to write this post, but nothing really changes.

I have several system that all use Firefox and are configured to use sync. All of them, but this one sync fine. The one with the issue is on a RHEL 7.5 host and is running FireFox 52.8.0.

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

I have had problems with Firefox Sync for a while.

I often reinstall operating systems I use. After each reinstall, I try to sync to my account. I get denied. The email gets returned.

I have bypassed this problem a number of times. I am not sure about the exact solution, but either waiting for 24 hours since last attempt to login or fiddling with Firefox Sync settings through my phone which is already logged in seemed to have helped.

Fiddling with phone settings does not work anymore. It may have never worked. I have not waited 24 hours since last attempt to login as well, so that could be the fix I am looking for. However, the main problem I have, is that I cannot bypass it in any other way. I am able to login to Firefox Screenshots for example with my account, but I cannot sign in to my Firefox account itself. It is not a good user experience.

I understand that this might be used for my own sake, to protect my account from potential intruders...however, I am very dissatisfied with not being able to sign it to my account for over couple of days because of such restrictions.

I do not think anyone can do anything about this, it will probably require redesigning existing safety measures just to deal with this obscure problem. I will wait for 24 hours and will update this post after I get the result. Maybe I can help someone else who is on the same boat as I am. I could not see similar problem on the internet other than a few, of which did not portray the problem in a way that I found relatable.

But maybe there is another way unbeknownst to me.

Either way, thank you for reading. I hope you have a nice day.
